Day 4: 25 Days of Cookies – Hot Chocolate Cookies

Hot chocolate is my favorite drink in the winter. Whipped cream, marshmallows, candy canes, heavy cream, the whole nine yards. So obviously, I just thought I would put it in cookie form!




Of course, I chose dark chocolate hot cocoa mix – the Simply Cocoa one from Swiss Miss- and dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate is definitely my favorite chocolate… it’s good for you… right?




Pro tip: Please, please, please freeze the dough for at least 20 minutes before baking! Or else the marshmallows will come out melted into sugar crystal pools – not fun. And a note about the types of marshmallows – you can use mini marshmallows or the marshmallow bits.




As these were baking my mind was working on my physics problem set. Despite all the momentum, I might have eaten a bit too much dough… oops!
